Abstract

Thirty women admitted to hospital for cholecystectomy were compared with a healthy community control group. Univariate comparisons showed that patients had significantly more social problems, manifested greater psychological distress and reported poorer social support. Logistic multiple regression analysis indicated that patient status was best predicted by manual occupational class and the interaction between employment and presence/absence of young children. The findings are discussed within the framework of illness behaviour.
